Technical Founder, Oculus Story Studio

Maxwell Planck is the technical founder of Oculus Story Studio. After graduating from MIT, Maxwell joined Pixar as a computer graphics technical director, solving creative and technical problems on six animated feature films: Cars, WALL•E, Up, Brave, Monsters University, and The Good Dinosaur. After 10 years, Maxwell left to find his next adventure and help build something that is novel, entertaining, awe-inspiring, and unsolved. He found what he was looking for in virtual reality. Maxwell joined the Oculus team to build Oculus Story Studio, a small team of technical artists from film and games founded on the vision that VR is the next great medium for telling stories. Story Studio creates and releases stories in service of developing VR’s language, to show that this medium has the versatility to be an art form, and to inspire and educate the next generation of storytellers and audience members.
